Army and Air Force (Annual) Bill. (11 Apr 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: It is rather pleasing to me to hear so many champion of the Army come forth. I only regret that the champions who are so numerous to-day were not equally numerous in pre-War days when I was serving. I make no apology for intervening at this late hour, because no time is wasted in considering this question, when we have got lives at stake, and the lives of British soldiers. I perhaps am in a...

Captain Robert Gee: 55. asked the Prime Minister whether, at the approaching Conference of Empire statesmen in London, means will be considered for co-operative action between the British and Dominion Governments, with a view to employment overseas of mining and other workers, by offering them the same facilities for emigration as are now offered to ex-service men?

Orders of the Day — International Labour Conference (Conventions). (27 May 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: I can quite understand that my intervention in this Debate may be looked upon as presumption by some of the older Members of the House, but I have studied this question up to a point and I have got so far in it that I begin to realise that with all my study I still know nothing at all about it. That is all the more reason why, for me, more day-light should be let in on this subject. I am not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Staffs.: War Office (Information Section). (21 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: Would the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of extending the scope of the publicity department to enlighten the non-commissioned officers and men of the Army as to the revolutionary propaganda that is being carried on in their midst in barracks?

Murder of Officers (Ireland). (21 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: I wish to associate myself with hon. Members who have spoken, particularly in regard to the brutality of these and other murders, but I wish to dissociate myself entirely from some of the sentences they have uttered. Judging by some of the speeches to which we have listened, this is nothing more or lass than a camouflaged attack upon the gallant men in the Army in Ireland who are doing their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Staffs.: Ministry of Pensions. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is a plain example of the superficial interest taken by the hon. Member for Dartford—who put down Question No. 11—in the ex-service man, as he evidently does not know that the, Ministry of Pensions is a product of the War?

CIVIL SERVICES ESTIMATES AND SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1921–1922. [Progress.]: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: I intervene in this Debate because we have heard so much about the opinion of the country, and we have heard so often the wonderful word economy, which ought to be called false economy. The hon. Member has talked about compromise. Compromise with what? Compromise with extravagance or compromise with economy? He admits that one of the Patronage Secretaries should be paid from the party funds...

CIVIL SERVICES ESTIMATES AND SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1921–1922. [Progress.]: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: The hon. Member asks what about Hertford? On that occasion, for the first time in the history of British political life, a case occurred where the paid agents of an hon. Member of this House had to be turned out of a public meeting for interrupting the meeting. In other words, it is the first introduction of the Boss Croker system of America brought into British politics, and I do not think...

CIVIL SERVICES ESTIMATES AND SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1921–1922. [Progress.]: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: You remember the dump scandal. After several weeks' campaigning in the Press, when the right atmosphere had been created, certain patriotic gentlemen, some of them Members of this House, came along, not from any business idea, but as pure patriots, and said, "We will make an offer to the Disposal Board; we will give them out of purely patriotic motives £15,000,000 for the whole of their...

CIVIL SERVICES ESTIMATES AND SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1921–1922. [Progress.]: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: I am dealing with the false impression created by the Anti-Waste party and the false economists. It was sold to a French syndicate for 10,500,000 francs, and according as the syndicate paid in the money they were allowed to take away the equivalent in meat, and during the year ending December, 1920, the whole of the 10,500,000 francs, with the exception of 138,000 francs, had been paid to the...

CIVIL SERVICES ESTIMATES AND SUPPLEMENTARY ESTIMATES, 1921–1922. [Progress.]: Treasury and Subordinate Departments. (23 Jun 1921)

Captain Robert Gee: I shall be very brief. As I said the 10,500,000 francs has been paid, with the exception of 138,000 francs. A few months ago the story was reproduced in the stunt Press, and it was because of the half-truth published that a false impression was created in the minds of the people. The action which Members are taking against the payment of the salaries of the Joint Parliamentary Secretaries to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ex-Service Men.: Instructional Factory, Twickenham. (8 Mar 1922)
